The sisters must find a way to break an evil romantic curse which turns the good young man Christopher into an owl by day at the moment before his true love, Brooke, becomes a wolf every night, and vice versa, until she forsakes him for the warlock who threw the curse to gain her, but it has one flaw: it won't apply during a solar eclipse, and one is nearing. After Christopher was shot while an owl and nearly died, both lovers are willing to sacrifice themselves for the other, but unlike them Phoebe realizes they may both be saved and together if the Charmes Ones can find and stop the couple in time. Meanwhile Piper and her lover, white lighter Leo, are desperate to get married, which The Powers That Be forbid. Written by KGF Vissers

Piper has doubts whether she ought to marry Leo or not, when the Halliwell sisters meet the stranger Christopher that becomes an owl by night whilst his lover Brookes takes the form of a wolf by day. Brooke explains that her boss was a sorcerer demon that cursed the couple of lovers because he wanted her for him. While the sisters try to break the spell, they believe that during an eclipse, Leo and Piper could get married without The Powers That Be finding out. But the Evil Triad is aware of their intentions.

In spite of being a rip-off of "Ladyhawke", "Magic Hour" is a good episode of "Charmed". The role of Cole Turner in the series is disclosed, and together with the participation of Penny 'Grams' Halliwell and the mysterious fate of Leo, will certainly improve the next shows. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Hora Mágica" ("The Magic Hour")
